Yeah, I like the fucking limelight Yeah, I like the fucking limelight Get it? Look they all staring at my eyes Yeah, maybe it's cuz I'm so bright Yeah, I like the fucking limelight They see my dress sense and know that I'll be their highlight Losing their eyesight My time coming like a high tide Press the green button here on my side Gotta run home cuz I know I'll be losing my ride No one really likes bright clothing To their right side Hindsight probably shouldn'ta worn up in this bright lime What everybody judging me for? I'll wear what I like! Maybe you shoulda pulled your sandals off and pants up There's a trillion fucking belts in existence man grab one Screw it, you're doing it who you think you're fooling, man, Someone better throw your salmon hat off and show you that's dumb Rapping in triplets the difference is I got a message in every line I wear what I want cuz I know that my clothing will never match anyone's style Maybe I'll finally revolutionize fashion so that everyone's lime Maybe I'll rap a little bit faster so only intelligent people will like it What am I gonna do when everybody coming up at me and criticizing me Cuz nothing is original? What do you expect me to do when every song that I make is cynical I swear that it's the pinnacle of idiots admit it bro My lyrics are incredible I get a little bit into it I gotta be able to make a different Appearance, I made a little idiot persona maybe just a little too much stuff and I'm admitting it But that woulda meant that every time I wore this I woulda gotten idiotic idiots at my door Maybe that's my torture Nice door knob I'm gonna start to get a little bit of an attitude And grab a door bomb Then I'm gonna snore on Everybody hating like, "Your song So wrong, thinking about the way that you go in long Tangents hating and berating your mom So long, I'm gonna find a woman I can whore on" (What can I say though?) I like the fucking limelight I like the fucking limelight Little bitch telling me off, think it's high time I'm finally gonna have you all hear my side Yeah, yeah, I like to go by Highlighter Spelled like that marker nobody uses in junior high The nice times I was made fun of for my style I'da never worn it if not for the fact that I like it When I was bullied I never knew how to fight back Now that I'm older I'm bolder and I can write tracks An introvert turned obnoxiously to a white rapper How many rappers you know admit they play Minecraft? You shoulda tried to crush my dream years ago back when I was so gullible, puzzled, manipulable and sad "Little fella, you're adorable thinking you got a shot If you want to be a singer why don't you study more often? Stop your drawing, focus harder, stop being fucking retarded You're so much smarter you're going to live inside of a car And I'da hit you hard if only your parents didn't have lawyers Go to the back of the class and paint on the canvas you're awful." Now I'm going to my class wearing neon t-shirts and jackets I made myself an extrovert to help with my sadness And ever since the Highlighter thing stuck with my gadgets Ashes to ashes, oh look the bullies bowing to my casket like "I'm gonna praise you to make you feel Proud of yourself because you were obnoxious!" Seven years later I'm suddenly waiting for when is my studio session It's awesome! At the same time I was cautious I'd never been in an office Made for production of music The level of anticipation was making me nauseous Wrote Mental Torture for my mother who almost Drugged herself into a coffin All the residual anger I harbor inside for the trauma That situation was awful, never recovered at all I pray and I wait for the day that I make it my songs are Playing on radio stations that they have to offer Do I deserve it or not? No, but even still I like the fucking limelight I like the fucking limelight F*ck everybody who's wearing boring ass colors I'ma wear the clothes I want And if you hate it turn a blind eye. (Yeah) I like the fucking limelight (Highlighter, Traffic cone, Tennis ball, Toxic waste) (Yeah) I like the fucking limelight (Leprechaun, Joker, Mint Man, Disney villain) (Yeah) Pretty soon I'll hate the limelight (Glow in the dark, Green Goblin, Green Lantern, Mike Wazowski) Lose my reputation in the limelight (Quaker parrot, Billie Eilish, Antifreeze, Oscar the Grouch)
